Driving lights install.

Hey guys,

I just picked up some Westin driving lights for pretty cheap on Craigslist. Now I'm having problems on where I want to install them. If you guys have any pictures of your ZJ with off road lights I would really like to see them!

I would like to build my own light bar for the front since I can't seem to find the one thats on KOR's website. I only have two for right now because my family is complaining saying that I'm wasting money! So if you could please help me out I would appreciate it!

Thanks!

I bought a westin safari bar on ebay. Very simple to bolt in, and it's a lot stronger than it looks (my g/f proved that when I let her drive )

And my first choice was a safari bar, but I don't like how much the brackets hang down.

They don't really hang that low, but if you're doing any kind of offroading, I can understand wanting as much ground clearance as possible. My offroading is done with my quad, the most this DD sees is going over high curbs in cities when I feel like it.
